SCHSL to hear Camden, Dreher appeals Thursday
Placeholder Image
A team which will include Kershaw County School District (KCSD) Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan, KCSD attorneys, Camden High School (CHS) Principal Dan Matthews and CHS head football coach and athletic director Jimmy Neal will appeal the Bulldogs football team’s post-season ban before the S.C. High School League (SCHSL) Executive Committee at 2 p.m. Thursday in Columbia. CHS, along with Dreher High School, were ruled ineligible to compete in this year’s AAA state football playoffs after the SCHSL completed its investigation of the post-game incident involving the Bulldogs and the Blue Devils following Camden’s 39-30 victory at Zemp Stadium on Oct. 17. According to KCSD Director of Communications Mary Anne Byrd, Morgan will ask that Camden’s appeal be closed to the public due to the sensitive nature of the arguments and the possible use of names involving high school students who were part of the fracas.
